Here's a short description of us....
Anna Hedly Goeke
As a therapist, I draw not only on my education, but also on my life experience. My work is highly informed by my training in the following:
I believe that people are complex. My varied background and life experience helps me work with a variety of personalities and issues. I earned my Bachelor Degree in Computer Science, and my Masters Degree in Applied Behavioral Science with a focus on Systems Counseling. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Washington and a Certified Gottman Therapist. The aspects of my background that I draw on the most are my multi-cultural background, my professional work experience, and my personal experience as a daughter, wife, and mother. My growing up years spanned four different countries. My work experience, prior to becoming a therapist, includes thirteen years in high-tech, five of which were in management in corporate America. In addition I have facilitated adult education classes, volunteered as a coach with personal growth organizations, and have been a certified image consultant. I continue to educate myself both formally and informally.
Cappuccino Girl - AKA Capi
Therapy Dog (in training)
Capi is a new addition to the therapy team. Capi was born in May of 2013 and has been an active part of the therapy process since late June of 2013. Sometimes her involvement is limited to looking cute while she's sleeping, sometimes cuddling with clients, and sometimes playing with toes.
Capi loves to meet new people, but if you prefer, she is equally at home out of sight in her 'den'.
